Parents who participate in the CAFE program on Wednesday nights can also enroll their children in Cathedral Kids, our innovative faith formation ministry for all Sacred Heart Cathedral children in grades 1-5. It provides a dynamic, interactive environment “where faith meets fun!” We will provide free childcare for children below first grade (infants, preschool, and kindergarten).
How does the program work?
Children enrolled in the Cathedral Kids ministry will focus on four key components: basic Bible stories, to understand the foundations of our Catholic faith; the essential doctrines as expressed in the Apostles Creed; a virtue of the month to be practiced; and a saint of the month whose example we follow! Also, we will learn about basic Catholic devotions such as the Rosary, Eucharistic Adoration, Stations of the Cross and the Divine Mercy chaplet. Through these activities, we hope to provide opportunities for our children to develop a personal relationship with Jesus and love for his Church.
What is the cost of the program?
For $50 per child ($150 for 3 or more children) all Cathedral Kids participants will receive a colorful children’s Bible, a virtue guidebook, a Cathedral Kids notebook, and a drawstring backpack.
All children receiving their First Reconciliation and First Communion must enroll in the Cathedral Kids program unless they are enrolled in Sacred Heart Cathedral School. Children who cannot attend on Wednesday nights will need to complete an online sacramental preparation program at home.
